I noticed people with grayed out names here on meta:
And I had no idea what it meant. I thought maybe it wasn’t their full name, or something. I actually had to look into the CSS to realize it symbolized they were new users. There’s no indication of that anywhere, except on the profile where their trust level shows as “new user.”
I’m not sure what the best solution is to this, but I was definitely confused by the name color, so I think something needs to be changed.
